I LOVE to shop and I'm pretty sure that most of you out there love to as well. But did you know that every time you walk into that department store for that FABULOUS outfit or BADD pair of shoes, you are contributing to the high percentage of the Earth's pollution? I don't want to sound like "Debby Downer", because I definitely love a good department store deal, but why not GO GREEN and do your part to save the environment while looking good.
REPREVE, is recycled fiber that helps turn plastic bottles you recycle into cool stuff you can use and wear everyday, like the green beanie that you see me wearing!
